<br>
Thanks for the tip. Apologies for the delayed response; around the time I sent my last updates to this thread, I got pulled off on a major project and am just coming back to work on the openmanage issues.<br>
<br>
So on one test host, I changed my yum repository files from &quot;hardware/latest&quot; to &quot;hardware/OMSA_7.2&quot;. After doing that I was able to upgrade from 7.1.0 to 7.2.0, but it was a bit tricky as it seems there was an issue with the &quot;srvadmin-all&quot; metapackage:<br>
<br>
Transaction Check Error:<br>
file /opt/dell/srvadmin/lib64/openmanage/libdcsnra.so from install of srvadmin-idrac-snmp-7.2.0-4.481.2.el6.x86_64 conflicts with file from package srvadmin-rac-components-7.1.0-4.220.2.el6.x86_64<br>
<br>
It seems that there's some sort of issue with how the metapackage pulls in dependencies, or how files are moved from one package to another (like that error). I was able to use the yum shell to both install srvadmin-all and remove srvadmin-rac-components-7.1.0
 in the same transaction, and the upgrade now worked:<br>
<br>
# yum shell<br>
&gt; yum install srvadmin-all<br>
&gt; yum remove srvadmin-rac-components-7.1.0<br>
&gt; run<br>
<br>
However, I'm seeing some strange behavior with racadm:<br>
<br>
[root@djamemdev1 ~]# which racadm<br>
/opt/dell/srvadmin/sbin/racadm<br>
[root@djamemdev1 ~]# ls -l /opt/dell/srvadmin/sbin/racadm<br>
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 19 Apr&nbsp; 7 15:58 /opt/dell/srvadmin/sbin/racadm -&gt; racadm-wrapper-rac5<br>
[root@djamemdev1 ~]# rpm -q --whatprovides /opt/dell/srvadmin/sbin/racadm-wrapper-rac5<br>
srvadmin-racadm5-7.2.0-4.3.426.el6.x86_64<br>
[root@djamemdev1 ~]# /opt/dell/srvadmin/sbin/racadm-wrapper-rac5 version<br>
RACADM version 7.1.0<br>
Copyright (c) 2003-2012 Dell, Inc.<br>
All Rights Reserved<br>
<br>
Even though RPM confirms I have omsa 7.2.0 installed, `racadm version` is returning &quot;RACADM version 7.1.0&quot;. I've already run &quot;srvadmin-services.sh restart&quot;.<br>
<br>
Is there any known reason why racadm would be reporting the wrong version? Is there something left hanging around my system that's causing it to use the wrong racadm?<br>
<br>
I'm also seeing something else that seems a bit strange:<br>
[root@opskvmdev1 ~]# which racadm<br>
/opt/dell/srvadmin/sbin/racadm<br>
[root@opskvmdev1 ~]# ls -l /opt/dell/srvadmin/sbin/racadm<br>
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 19 Apr&nbsp; 7 16:39 /opt/dell/srvadmin/sbin/racadm -&gt; racadm-wrapper-rac5<br>
[root@opskvmdev1 ~]# rpm -q --whatprovides /opt/dell/srvadmin/sbin/racadm<br>
file /opt/dell/srvadmin/sbin/racadm is not owned by any package<br>
<br>
So it looks like `racadm` itself is a symlink that's not actually owned by a package?<br>
<br>
Thanks for any assistance,<br>
Jason<br>

 of YUM), this is known issue and unfortunately there is no workaround for the same at this moment. Yes, this minor patch was not recommended for the upgrade (and was not covered in test) but can be used as fresh installation. We are planning to post our updated
 OM version soon!! <o:p></o:p></span></p>

<p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size:10.0pt;font-family:&quot;Tahoma&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">If you can do the fresh installation of 7.3.2 by keeping a backup of your user specific configuration, would also help.<o:p></o:p></span></p>

<span style="font-size:10.0pt;font-family:&quot;Tahoma&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">&gt;&gt;&gt; OMSA 7.1.0 installed on them via RPM. We use Puppet to manage

<span style="font-size:10.0pt;font-family:&quot;Tahoma&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">&gt;&gt;&gt; configuration and package installation. If I try to install/upgrade
</span><br>
<span style="font-size:10.0pt;font-family:&quot;Tahoma&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">&gt;&gt;&gt; (well Puppet tries, but same thing) to 7.3.2, it fails because a
</span><br>
<span style="font-size:10.0pt;font-family:&quot;Tahoma&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">&gt;&gt;&gt; bunch of files were moved from srvadmin-omcommon to srvadmin-omacs,
</span><br>
<span style="font-size:10.0pt;font-family:&quot;Tahoma&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">&gt;&gt;&gt; but the spec files were never updated to reflect this. The

<span style="font-size:10.0pt;font-family:&quot;Tahoma&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">&gt;&gt;&gt; documentation sats that I can &quot;yum upgrade&quot; to upgrade srvadmin, but
</span><br>
<span style="font-size:10.0pt;font-family:&quot;Tahoma&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">&gt;&gt;&gt; this is failing if srvadmin-all-7.1.0 is already installed, and I

</span><br>
<span style="font-size:10.0pt;font-family:&quot;Tahoma&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">&gt;&gt;&gt; simply isn't possible for us - we enforce configuration with Puppet,

<span style="font-size:10.0pt;font-family:&quot;Tahoma&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">&gt;&gt;&gt; which installs the specified version of a package, there's no way to

<span style="font-size:10.0pt;font-family:&quot;Tahoma&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">&gt;&gt;&gt; This should be a *simple* fix to the RPM spec file, of adding the

<span style="font-size:10.0pt;font-family:&quot;Tahoma&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">&gt;&gt;&gt; correct provides/obsoletes statements in the spec file. Doing this
</span><br>
<span style="font-size:10.0pt;font-family:&quot;Tahoma&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">&gt;&gt;&gt; would allow an actual update to 7.3, not a remove and reinstall.</span>
<br>
<span style="font-size:10.0pt;font-family:&quot;Tahoma&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">&gt;&gt;&gt; Since my suggestion of this on 1/23 seems to have fallen on deaf

<span style="font-size:10.0pt;font-family:&quot;Tahoma&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">&gt;&gt;&gt; ears, I wondered where I could get the RPM spec files and source, so
</span><br>
<span style="font-size:10.0pt;font-family:&quot;Tahoma&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">&gt;&gt;&gt; I could submit a patch to make the fix. I don't really *want* the
